Would I have a less chance of going bald if I have coarse hair rather than fine hair? (cause I have thick coarse hair, like my non bald dad)

It still runs through the x chromosome to her children and it shows in the male children as a type of pattern baldness. But yes. Having a father you describe and being as you describe yourself - you are not likely to go bald. Just don't bet your life on it. ;-). ...Read more
I have a couple of strands of dark coarse hair growing randomly from my neck. Is this a hormonal problem maybe? Who should I go to to get rid of this?
Sounds normal: Two hairs growing randomly on any area of skin is probably still "normal" because humans are far from perfect. Sometimes there's a couple of out-of-control hair follicles here and there. If there is anything unusual at the surface, a dermatologist can check with a magnifying glass. Plucking the hairs will remove them temporarily, or one can use electrolysis or laser for permanent removal. ...Read more
Period came a month late, night sweats and few coarse hair on stomach. Convinced its a hormone problem but blood tests are normal. Help?
What tests were done? What were the results? Did you discuss your concern with the doctor who ordered the tests?
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

If it doesn't, see your doctor to rule out an underlying cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
